We hoped that perhaps the overwhelming avocado obsession, the food trend that creeps in at every corner and refuses to budge from our brunch menus, might die in 2016.
While avocado bars and cafes have been popping up around New York for a while, they haven’t really made it over to the UK – other than one entirely avocado brunch popup.

Created by foodie friends Julien Zaal, Ron Simpson, and Jaimie van Heije, The Avocado Show will be a restaurant serving up all things avocado, from avocado bun burgers (which are nonsense, but they look nice on Instagram) to avocado chocolate smoothies.
‘The possibilities are endless,’ the founders told Algemeen Dagblad. ‘Our only rule is that the dishes need to contain the green super fruit in one way or another.’

It’s not clear exactly when the restaurant will be open, but we do know it’ll be in early 2017, that it’ll be in The Pijp, and it’ll serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night snacks.
If all goes well, brace yourselves for something similar in the UK. The avocado craze isn’t going anywhere just yet.
